Ryan was telling the truth - ESPECIALLY ABOUT MEDICARE!
Obozo is the one who has a problem with the truth. America is better off after 4 years of this sh*thead. LMFAO.
23 million people out of work. Income down $4000 per household and $2 more per gallon of gas.
Give me a break.
Did I mention 5 Trillion dollars added to the National Debt? The collective dumbass of a voting public that would reelect this unmitigated POS boggles my mind.
PS: I don't start this stuff. I only respond when it pisses me off.

You're not going to like the next four years.
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.
According to the NCAA archives in 1919 there were numerous organizations that awarded MNC's. Harvard was recognized by the majority of them as national champion. One did list A&M as #1.
The first legitimate, nationally recognized poll was the AP poll, started in 1936. All of the other polls are either after the fact or not credible. The NCAA is to blame for giving pre-1936 "polls" equal recognition on their website. But A&M isn't listed in 1927, the other year beside 1919 which the lowags have added to their only legitimate national championship of 1939.
The low ones haven't finished in the top five in any major poll since 1956. True history is an enemy of Texas A&M football. That's why they're trying so desperately to revise it.
And we haven't even discussed their prominent history of major NCAA penalties, one of the worst three in the country. You would think with all their cheating that they would have more results to show for it.
Class, tradition, and integrity.

Kind of my take on it. Hard to believe the university president or system chancellor would allow it, personally. It's basically teaching your students that it's ok to lie.

Let's keep politics off the board whether you're pissed off or not. One man's Obama is another man's GW. I do think it's important to show respect for the person who hold office irregardless of your political stance. Name calling is childish. Ryan did lie in his speech. That is irrefutable.
Keep the political sh*t off this board.
its ooops aggie math
Please take the political crap to the politics board (I'm aware we don't have one).
I guess Aggy is not going to let their campaign be dictated by fact-checkers

They let the message board idiots run their athletic department and university.
Aggy gives me a headache
The SEC of signatures....
This is hilarious.
But wait, aren't the aggies always dogging Mack about never winning any conference championships except with Vince Young? With the new aggie math Mack has 6 Big XII Conference championships!
Texas - Big XII Champs in 2009, 2008*, 2005, 2002*, 2001*, 1999* (*these are all using aggie math)
So Mack has won championships 6 out 14 years. Not bad. Thank you aggies.
I say let them do it. It only reveals to a wider public the sheep humping enigma that is Texas A&M.
Aggie will claim trademark infringement.
Not really a stretch. Fed-ex Jackie Sherrill still being the most revered representative of their athletic department basically teaches students it's ok to cheat. Bowtie giving different reasons for the conference move depending on his audience...well the point has been made. Aggie honor code has not existed since about the second National Title that these desperate people left the stadium with without paying for. So glad they are gone, just wish they wouldn't embarass the entire state on the way out.
First the billboards, now this.....Get help.

So much for that "Honor Code."
aggy doesn't lie cheat or steal. they just put it on their most important and visible structure on campus.
my favorite is 2010. a three-way tie for the south division of the Big 12. didn't even play in the conference championship game. 4-loss team who lost to LSU and Arkansas. what must the SEC think of them?
1997? 39-point loss in the conference championship game?
an NC during World War One. another with one vote and behind Harvard and Illinois 85 years ago.
you just can't make this stuff up.
But the '19 Dunkin Donut Index and '27 Lenscrafters Ratings are reputable (sarcasm)...
But you missed the best part. They list 2010 as a "co-championship" when actually it was at best a three way tie ("tri" instead of "co") for the South division finish with OU and OSU, with OU advancing to the title game according to the tie breaking rules.
Don't forget you're talkin' about class and tradition here. And integrity.
Look under "championships" in the link below.

Remember this thread when someone says we really should play them again because it was a great tradition or a great rivalry.
Here's Aggy's logic about 2010. 2010 was a highly successful year for the Aggies.
Their conference record was equal to OU and OSU losing 35-38 in Stillwater and beat OU 33-19 in Collie Station and also soundly beat Tech in Collie Station 45-27 and beat a terribleTexas team in Austin 24-17.
By the Sooner's dumb luck because they were ranked higher they went to the conference championship and won of course and then played in a BCS bowl. Aggie sees it as them being better than OU and if OU won so would have Aggy.
Seems logical to that point and might even be true, but they won vicariously through OU.
By that logic they should also claim a BCS bowl victory since OU beat Connecticut 48-20 in the Fiesta while LSU destroyed A&M 41-24 in the Cotton.
